THE PRACTICE of discrimination makes me THE FUGITIVE
AS THE WORLD TURNS in their minds,
But SEVENTH HEAVEN exists in 60 MINUTES of every hour in my soul,
That makes me THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL.
THE MOLE in my identity?
I know who I am!
No MORAL COURT needed to tell me that I'm right,
This is my life!
THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS,
You all need to check this message.
JUDGE JUDY is not JUDGING AMY,
The justice system is judging your reflection.
So WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?
I guess that's success, yes?
No, THE FACTS OF LIFE still persist.
WILL AND GRACE may have,
But MALCOM AND EDDIE are still struggling.
The COPS, still bugging,
FRASIER caught smuggling,
A BLIND DATE for loving?
No LAW AND ORDER for AMERICA'S MOST WANTED.
Sometimes they flaunt it.
DAVID and JAY even taunt it,
While JERRY and HOWARD want it UNDRESSED,
IN LIVING COLOR, no less.
On everyone's t.v. set,
Where it's POLITICALLY INCORRECT!
Here's the INSIDE EDITION;
BOSTON PUBLIC representing public education?
PAID PROGRAMMING, money wasted!
Take your tuition and invest it!
Like EMERIL, can you taste it?
I've been TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL.
TO TELL THE TRUTH,
48 HOURS ago I was SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE,
A DARK ANGEL before my prime.
Ask ALLY MCBEAL,
This is REAL TV,
No AMERICA'S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEO.
Like THE CROCODILE HUNTER,
If stabbed, I'd be deceased.
I used to be THIRTY-SOMETHING.
No longer a JACKASS with RUGRATS as FRIENDS.
OPRAH, can I get an AMEN?
Or, at least an incentive to "keep on pushing".
If we could get to the WEST WING of the White House
IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT,
Would BARNEY AND FRIENDS
Provide a TEMPTATION ISLAND for us all,
Not just the EWINGS and the HUCKSTABLES?
Because 8 IS NOT ENOUGH!
Only THE JEFFERSONS have moved up.
MOESHA and MALCOM remain IN THE MIDDLE
Because SPIN-CITY's doctors aren't in the ER.
Are you with me so far?
I'm not mad at you,
Nor am I MAD ABOUT YOU!
My story lives BEHIND THE MUSIC that makes the whole world sing "blues".
But unlike BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER,
I've got only ONE LIFE TO LIVE,
WIN, LOSE or DRAW.
No lie, In the long run we all die,
But FAMILY MATTERS most when striving to get your piece of the pie.
If THE PRICE IS RIGHT, spin the WHEEL OF FORTUNE and win.
But what about ALL MY CHILDREN who can't swim,
Sent down to DAWSON'S CREEK to jump in;
Their lives are in JEOPARDY
And it's POPULAR to pretend that THE DISTRICT they reside in
Isn't WHAT'S HAPPENING.
No GENERAL HOSPITAL to help fight this real life sitcom.
I'm not CHARMED to know that EVERYBODY LOVE'S RAYMOND!
This is MURDER SHE WROTE!
And TODAY just like tomorrow
Some people reside in sorrow down on HILL STREET BLUES,
ALL IN THE FAMILY, MARRIED WITH CHILDREN,
Living UNHAPPILY EVERAFTER!
And that's just cruel!
THE POWER OF ATTORNEY may help someday,
But THE VIEW of DATELINE news on this CURRENT AFFAIR
Has created a division amongst the masses;
A FAMILY FEUD.
Until THE PEOPLE'S COURT sentence all to serve "equality",
I know that those of us
No longer LOST
Conscious of the inequalities of
THE REAL WORLD,
Will continue on the path
That makes right the wrong
Because we are the
Rogionline wrote 455 days ago (positive)1I think this was a noble attempt to weave a poem around the names of television programs. But... in truth it doesn't work for me as poetry, it's more like a humorous or satirical piece of journalism. One suggestion, put the names of the TV shows in normal non-bold font to match the rest of the poem and it could make a difference as the program name words will then become words with their normal meaning. TV buffs will still get it and appreciate it. Thumbs up anyway for creativity!1 point
